Welcome to Oakgrove

WELCOME TO THE PARENTS' AREA

A warm welcome to the parent area of the website.  If you have any questions we hope that you will find all the answers here.  If not, don't hesistate to contact us and we will be able to help.

OUR HISTORY

Oakgrove is an integrated school.  It was set up by parents and other people interested in educating Catholic and Protestant children, together with others, in a spirit of openness and acceptance.  It opened in September 1991 with 69 pupils on roll and rapidly increased in numbers.  Child centredness and parental involvement are important aspects of integrated education and the development of high self esteem among children and staff is an important feature of the school ethos.

ABOUT THE WEBSITE

We recommend that you visit the class area for you child and also the subject areas where you will find lots of games to help support learning.

Discipline

Behaviour Management

The school behaviour management policy, which includes an anti-bullying policy, has been drawn up following workshops involving parents, governors, staff and children.  It stresses the importance of positive behaviour managementand encourages the development of self-discipline.  Following a course on Assertive Discipline the teaching staff have worked together with their classes to produce a number of rules that are to be adhered to in each class & teacher.

These general rules should also be kept by all children at all times during the school day and are supported by a system of rewards and consequences.  Each classroom has these rules, rewards and consequences prominently displayed and they are discussed with the children at the beginning of the school year.

  • Have Fun!
  • Try my Best.
  • Be Kind.
  • Listen.
  • Keep Hands, Feet and Objects to Myself.

All incidents of bullying or anti social behaviour are reported to the Principal or Vice Principal and dealt with immediately.  Serious incidents of misbehaviour may result in suspension. See Behaviour Management Policy.
